Equipment Breakdown Insurance is an often overlooked, but vital segment of the insurance market; this seminar is geared towards helping you better understand it. Equipment Breakdown Insurance premium volumes in Canada now near three hundred million dollars annually, and there are thousands of uninsured exposures out there lacking this essential coverage. Equipment Breakdown Insurance is an important piece of protection in a risk management plan that no business should be without. Unfortunately, equipment owners never realize the importance of this type of coverage until a large claim is made and denied by property insurers.



  • Examine why coverage is needed – property exclusions, loss prevention, jurisdictional inspections
  • Compare insurance vs warranties vs maintenance contracts
  • Determine what types of equipment are covered and what causes it to break down
  • Discuss how an equipment breakdown policy responds to losses
  • Identify methods of placement
  • Explore claims examples and discussion
  • Engage in a guided tour of the hotel boiler room
